The final day beckons and also heralds the end of the auction season for our setting gang. With back to back auctions, World Cup & IPL, today will mark the end of a hectic season indeed. Let us review so far the 2015 IPL season: –
Sitting pretty at the top is the fantasy God, Dishin who has simply blasted away all competition to set a new record point tally with 5,111 points. He will be crowned champion after tonights game and has had a fantastic IPL 2015. He has set records in terms of total points, all-rounder points, single most points in a day, most points on bench after first X1 – phew! All this is even more impressive considering his compulsory wicket-keeper has only scored 14 points! Astonishing.
The second place is an open battle and could go anyways between Sach, Romy & Rahul. Sachin has momentum and is on a war path since the qualifiers ended. Rahul’s only remaining player is D Bravo whose performance today will determine his fate. Romy has Smith, Dhoni & Bhaji while Sach has the in-form Nehra, Ashwin, Pollard trio.
The rest of the positions this year will be trivial as a flawed pot distribution system hurt the popularity of the auctions this year.
Top scoring batsman: D Warner with 882 points – Romy
Top scoring bowler: A Nehra with 661 points – Sachin (Nehra also has one more game to play!)
Top scoring WK: R Uthappa with 484 points – Rahul
Top scoring All-Rounder: A Russell with 851 points – Chirag/Vicky
